MEN OF CHARACTER BIBLE
The Bible gives us examples of how to live the Christian life.
What has been recorded in the Old Testament has been “written for our instruction, on whom the ends of the ages have come.”
1 Corinthians 10:11
"This was true in the First Century and it's just as true in the Twenty First Century." — Dr. Gene Getz
Throughout this Bible, you’ll discover features that include articles, character profiles, and qualities that measure a man’s spiritual status.
MEN OF CHARACTER ARTICLES
These features include brief expositions of Scripture that look at men in the Bible and focus on their decisions, choices, actions, and relationship to God and others. Each article highlights biblical principles that apply today, calls attention to a relevant Bible verse to remember, and poses probing questions to help us develop godly character.
BIBLICAL CHARACTER PROFILES
These features examine a number of men in the biblical story line and connect their experiences to our own. Though they lived centuries ago in totally different cultures, both their strengths and weaknesses provide guidelines for living in God’s will today.
THE MEASURE OF
These features consider key character traits and qualities that are critical to becoming the men God created us to be. These, in turn, provide biblical goals for “growing into maturity with a stature measured by Christ’s fullness” (Ephesians 4:13).
VERSES TO REMEMBER
These are crucial Scripture passages that will enable all of us to hide God’s Word in our hearts so that we may grow in grace as men of God. Each highlighted verse points readers to a related men of character article.
“I received an invitation from B&H to prepare the articles and the character profiles included in this men’s study Bible. I’m honored with this awesome opportunity to continue a pastoral ministry, not only to men, but to all members of the family of God.” ~ Gene Getz
THE CHURCH - Romans 12:5
“. . . in the same way we who are many are one body in Christ and individually members of one another.”
In this passage and others, Paul made it clear that all believers are essential in building up the body of Christ in order to become mature.
We need “one another” because we’re “members of one another” within the body of Christ. Romans 12:5
Many years ago, to evaluate my own progress , I invited my wife, Elaine, to study many of these qualities with me. To be honest, it was somewhat threatening, but it became a very significant experience in becoming more like Jesus Christ.
I share this personal experience since I firmly believe that you’ll get the same results with the Men of Character Bible.
